Indiana Jones and the Golden Fleece: Apart from Indy’s flowery journal entries, that he delivers a baby in a blizzard while a giant serpent of Hecate prepares to strike, that he offers the baby as a sacrifice, that the villain is a caricatured Dutchman whose villainy is obvious + the usual handful of Nazis, and that Indy dunks himself and his hat in a vat of olive oil and the latter comes out totally unscathed, Indiana Jones and the Golden Fleece is actually not horrible. The action is fast, the ...more

I read most of this book before I realized that I wasn't actually enjoying it. And it took me a long time to figure out why.
You see, I love Indiana Jones, and I loved learning more about the further exploits of the man...but the reality of reading about his adventures was a lot less exciting than watching them. I could only play the theme song in my head so many times before it got repetitive and useless towards building the tension necessary.
I actually own a few Indy comic books that I now rea

This collection was more of a let down unfortunately. Both the Golden Fleece and the Shrine of the Sea Devil are short, cheesy, and seem out of character. The Iron Phoenix is the worst of the lot: rambling, unimaginative, and heavy handed.

The last two are clearly the best. The Spear of Destiny suffers from doing too much in too few pages, which is annoying since it opens by recounting the end of Last Crusade word for word. The plot is jumpy and convoluted, but Indy's father is handled perfectly

Personally I enjoyed this collection. As a huge fan of graphic adventures back in the day, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis was begging for a sequel, and Spear of Destiny was supposedly that sequel. The game was never finished, but adapted into a comic book, and it's plain to see where shortcuts were made in order to make it a four issue story. However, both Spear of Destiny and Iron Phoenix were relatively strong stories, the arc that let me down in this collection was Sargossa Pirates wh ...more

This collection of adventures was fun to read. They were accurate in portraying the feel of the original Indiana Jones films, which had action aplenty with just enough of something mystical or otherworldly to spice the story up. The choice to have different people scripting and pencilling each story provided for visually different stories, some nicer to read than others but none which were disappointing. This was a fun read, and it will be interesting if/when I read volume 1 whether this volume ...more

Wasn't great. I wasn't a fan of the awful art work for Indy and the stories were a bit odd. Especially the Pirate story. The one I liked just a bit was Spear of Destiny. It was a decent story. Everything else was odd, like the baby who was born when a giant dragon was about to destroy it. Odd. Still it's a nice Indiana Jones item to have and has a couple of the comics in one volume. Not a necessary read.

Some good, some bad. "Sargasso Pirates" is pretty bad. I like "Shrine of the Sea Devil," though it was too short and had a bizarre ending. interesting/unusual drawing style as well. "Iron Phoenix" and "The Spear of Destiny" were worth the price of purchase.

Overall, I was very disappointed by the quality of the stories in this collection (which ones I was able to read anyway). Some were just rehashes of better-told Indiana Jones stories, while some (like "Shrine of the Sea Devil") were just nonsensical. Wonderful art does not a good narrative make.

I didn't actually read this, but halfway through the three stories in the first omnibus was enough to convince me it wouldn't be worth it.

The first volume was passable and some parts even enjoyable, this one was pure pain and suffering. The plots of the stories were ridiculous and villains even more.
